Upcoming Events

Cancer Metabolism: From molecules to medicine

It takes years to discover, develop and market a new medication. But what does this long-term, complicated process actually involve? In this seminar, Harvard Medical School scientists and researchers will follow the molecular pathways related to cancer metabolism to help us understand the progress being made in the search for new and effective cancer treatments.

April 10, 6:00-7:30 P.M.
Decoding Depression

Depression affects an estimated 300 million people worldwide and research now shows that the mood disorder can strike men and women in dramatically different ways. During this seminar, Harvard Medical School mental health experts will discuss how sex plays a role in the signs and symptoms of depression, who is at greater risk for depression and how effective treatment can differ for men and women.

April 17, 6:00-7:30 P.M.
MD vs. Machine: Artificial intelligence in health care

Recent advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning are changing the way doctors practice medicine. Can medical data actually improve health care? At this seminar, Harvard Medical School scientists and physicians will discuss how AI assists doctors in diagnosing disease, determining the best treatments and predicting better outcomes for their patients.

April 30, 6:00-7:30 P.M.
Why Sleep Matters

Many of us burn the candle at both ends, as we stay up late into the night to study, work or have fun. But going without adequate sleep carries short- and long-term health consequences. In this seminar, Harvard Medical School sleep experts illuminate the importance of getting a good night’s rest and demystify how much sleep is needed and why it’s so vital to keep our bodies at their best during every hour of the day.
